He fought Dustin Poirier for the trilogy at the mega event in Las Vegas. Unfortunately for McGregor, the referee had to stop the bout as Conor snapped his ankle. He is currently en route to recovery and revealed that doctors have given him the green light to start sparring once again from April.
Conor McGregor is not done with the lightweight division
Justin Gaethje is next in line for Charles Oliveira. According to earlier reports, the fight is official for UFC 274. However, Conor does not think it will be smart for Oliveira to go through with the contest. According to ‘The Notorious One’, he still wants to fight at lightweight and the upcoming Netflix documentary will show his determination and hard work. He said,
“Something about the lightweight division. You know, got the weight off me. I was primed as a lightweight fighter. You know it was not easy. It was a lot of hard work. People say I’m too successful to put in the real hard work. Well, they are going to see when this Netflix documentary drops, what real hard work is!”
“You know what I mean, I didn’t just land in this position by chance. I was through years and years and years of insane work ethic and hard work and commitment. So, you know I got myself down to lightweight after being at welterweight in the 40 second KO. And you know, I could do it again. I’m just taking it day by day to see what happens.”
Conor McGregor also revealed that he may make his return to active competition during the international fight week. If the champion does indeed defend the title in May, then a fight in July may not be easy to make. However, due to his star power, Conor will not have a shortage of opponents stepping up to fight him.
